Book Description :

"Changez is living an immigrant's dream of America. At the top of his class at Princeton, he is snapped up by the elite valuation firm of Underwood Samson. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romance with elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society at the same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore. But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in his adopted city suddenly overturned and his relationship with Erica eclipsed by the reawakened ghosts of her past. And Changez's own identity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love"--Jacket.

Book Description :

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is more than the usual immigrant book of adaptation, struggle, and identity. It is the gripping tale of a young man who comes to America from Pakistan just prior to 9/11. The protagonist, Changez, is a Harvard educated businessman who works for a high-profile company that assesses the economic value of other companies. Changez is very successful in his chosen career, but then September 11 happens and everything changes. The setting is Lahore, Pakistan and the tale is told by one narrator, that of Changez, as he speaks to a nameless and faceless American tourist. The narration takes place in the span of a single evening, in fact, during a single meal, and Hamid manages to swing the reader on a pendulum of conflicting emotions and thoughts. The Bookclub-in-a-Box guide explores a number of important questions: who is this nameless American and why is he in Pakistan; how can one person have equal love for two countries that are at odds with each other in culture and outlook; how does such a person come to terms with his two worlds; and what is the significance of the word “reluctant” in the novel’s title, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide also includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author.

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Literature - Comparative Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Bonn, language: English, abstract: This paper aims to show how a genre can be utilised in order to clarify specific struggles of a fictional character and make them universally accessible to any reader, which proves that Postcolonialism is not only a discussion about the past, but still influences people all over the world as colonialism finds its new ways to establish itself in many parts of the world as the colonial "legacies continue to inflect contemporary geo-political realities and conflicts around the world and impact upon how different people (are forced to) live today". Hamid's "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", one of the most well-known 21st century novels written by a Pakistani author intelligently combines the elements of the Bildungsroman and concepts of Postcolonialism. Changez is the protagonist of a modern Bildungsroman who experiences the power of a new form of colonialism and is made aware of his role as a colonised subject by his journeys throughout a crucial phase of identity formation in his life.

Book Description :

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 9/10, , course: Faculty of Letters, language: English, abstract: This essay analyses North America’s foreign relations with the Middle East before and after the 9/11 attacks in Moshin Hamid’s "The Reluctant Fundamentalist". This is inherently depicted in personal and professional relations. Namely, the plotline focuses on the life of Changez, a Pakistani immigrant that portrays an ‘Islamic elite’ dwelling in the US. Following the 9/11 attacks, a growing wave of Islamophobia will emerge, tearing apart Changez’s accommodated American lifestyle. Much of this detriment is conveyed by means of Changez’s relationship with other characters, especially with Erica (Changez’s love interest), a troubled young woman. Erica’s character is a symbol for the American nation.

Book Description :

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Individuum, Gruppe, Gesellschaft, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The focus of this research paper is to stimulate as well as evoke the study of theoretical underpinning of hybridity and identity crisis in The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid. In addition, the research also draws upon Homi K Bhabhas's concept of hybridity to trace their connection .The findings of this research throw light upon the interwoven pattern of hybridity and identity crisis. Thus, novelists exposed and expressed the conditions of identity Crises that emerged in postcolonial period. According to Oxford English dictionary; identity is defined as “The identification of an individual or a group or a nation in postcolonial terms as one notice easily is linked to the "other", that means they recognize themselves "us" with the existence of the "other". Otherness is a feature to recognize identity in postcolonial era in which also means it is twofold, "both identity and difference, so that every other, every different than and excluded by is dialectically created and includes the values and meaning of the colonizing culture even as it rejects its power to define".

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject American Studies - Literature, , language: English, abstract: The focus of this paper is the plight the Muslims of the world, especially those living in America, face due to religious discriminations. This discrimination is the result of the religious profiling of the media and the institutions which are working to spread the ideology of the West to the rest of the world. Everything is under their control so they manipulate the facts. Many Asian writers have tried to portray the true picture of the scene but it remains a great crisis need to be resolved. This paper will examine the core issues resulting from the religious profiling with the references from the novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", written by Mohsin Hamid in the context of post-9/11 milieu of the world, especially about the dealing with the Muslims.

Book Description :

ABOUT THE BOOK “I wonder now, sir, whether I believed at all in the firmness of the foundations of the new life I was attempting to construct for myself in New York.” Americans remember where they were on September 11, 2001, a day that has become a permanent fixture in the calendar. As retaliation for the attack the US launched a war in Afghanistan called “Operation Enduring Freedom” with the goal of dismantling the Taliban. Currently, the Afghanistan war has become America's longest war, even longer than the war in Vietnam. Given the duration of the war and how it began, it is surprising to note that many people in Afghanistan don’t know why the war started. Considering that 42% of the population is under 14 and that 72% is illiterate, it’s not surprising that this event doesn’t register. In addition the scarcity of electricity, also explains ignorance of the event American “foreigners” call September 11th. As a result most people from Afghanistan don’t understand why the U.S. invaded their country, causing more than than 12,000 civilian deaths since the war started. The disparity of the two worldviews continues to contribute to the tensions between the two countries. Similarly, the average American knows very little about the Afghani people and the politics of this area. In an Angus Reid Public Opinion Poll half of American respondents said they don’t understand what the war in Afghanistan is about. One of the reasons for this might be because the U.S. media doesn’t focus on this war as much as on the Kardashians. This tension and lack of understanding creates a perfect opening for The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamad to educate Americans about the other side. The Reluctant Fundamentalist is about a Pakistani living in New York who reevaluates his successful American life after the September 11 attacks. The book’s main advantage is that it is so topical. Given the heavy involvement of the U.S. in the Middle East, as well as neighbouring Afghanistan and Pakistan, it seems no region is more important to American welfare. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “Students like me were given visas and scholarships, complete financial aid, mind you and invited into the ranks of the meritocracy. In return we were expected to contribute our talents to your society, the society we were joining. And for the most part we were happy to do so. I certainly was, at least at first.” (pg.4) It is worth describing the author’s background, which can be found on his website, because it bears many similarities to the main character of the novel, Changez. From the ages of 9 to 18, the author lived in Lahore, Pakistan. Hamid studied at Princeton University and graduated summa cum laude. He then went Harvard Law School. Upon graduation he got a job at the elite McKinsey and Company and used his free time to complete his first novel. This novel, Moth Smoke, took seven years to complete, but became a bestseller in India and Pakistan. The Reluctant Fundamentalist is his second book and also took seven years to complete. On BBC Radio Hamid explains that the reason it took him so long to write both books is that he is figuring them out as he writes them. Quicklet on Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist The Reluctant Fundamentalist is the story of Changez who comes from Pakistan to study at Princeton University. At Princeton he excels and is rewarded with a job at the prestigious valuation firm “Ultrawood Samson.” He uses his sign on bonus to pay for a trip to Greece with his classmates. In Greece he falls in love with an all American girl named Erica. He is attracted to her beauty and she is attracted to his old fashioned manners. As he gets to know her Changez finds out that her ex boyfriend, Chris, died of lung cancer a year earlier.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen (Institut fur Englische Philologie), Veranstaltung: Reactions to Terrorism - Criticism and Literature after 9/11, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Ihre Arbeit uberzeugt nicht nur durch die interessante und prazise Fragestellung, sondern auch durch einen klaren Aufbau. Die Argumentation ist stets zielgerichtet und insgesamt von hoher Uberzeugungskraft. Positiv hervorzuheben ist daruber hinaus, dass Sie zu wirklich spannenden Beobachtungen und Ergebnissen gelangen. Ich habe ihre ausserst eigenstandige Arbeit, die schon recht souveran eine Vielzahl relevanter literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Kontexte heranzieht, uber weite Strecken weniger als Korrektorin, sondern mit echtem Interesse gelesen., Abstract: Die katastrophalen Anschlage vom 11. September 2001 haben Menschen auf der ganzen Welt schockiert. Noch bevor sich die Staubwolke gelegt hatte und das Aus-mass des bislang heftigsten terroristischen Angriffs sichtbar wurde, war jedem ein-zelnen, ob New Yorker oder nicht, bewusst, dass dieses Ereignis weitreichende Folgen haben wurde. Kurz nach den Terroranschlagen konnte bereits beobachtet werden, wie sich diese schreckliche Tat, gerade im Zeitalter der Globalisierung, auf viele Bereiche des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenlebens auswirkt. Bis heute, nur wenige Jahre nach den Anschlagen, sind zahlreiche Bucher, Dokumentationen und auch Kinofilme erschienen, die diese weltweite historische Zasur thematisieren. Der Verarbeitungsprozess ist langst nicht abgeschlossen und somit lassen sich vor allem in den jungsten Werken der Weltliteratur interessante Beobachtungen zur amerikanischen Post-9/11-Gesellschaft machen. Mohsin Hamids Novelle The Reluctant Fundamentalist zeigt auf besonders interessante Art und Weise wie sich die Anschlage vom 11. September auf die amerikanische Gesellschaft auswirken. Bemerkenswert ist nicht nur, dass The Reluctant Fundamen
